WHY 'SUNDAY CREEK'?
In 1930, the Sunday Creek tributary of the Ohio River was once lined with a cluster of coal mines. One such mine became the site of Ohio’s worst ever mine disaster, when an explosion killed 82 men. The disaster prompted outrage and bolstered improvement of Ohio’s mine safety laws.

Through region-based, cohesive advocacy, we see an opportunity for a bold new way of life emerging in these hills. Our work has brought millions of dollars to our clients from state, federal and private sources.
